>> the state public utility commission already fined pg&e more than a quarter million dollars has given the company its money back. the "san francisco chronicle" reports that the cpuc returned the fine so it could try to impose a bigger fine down the road. the original fine was imposed after an audit determined that pg&e had not monitored the san bruno pipe line closely enough. the commission determined that did play a role in the 2010 explosion that killed eight people. but the attorney warned that the early fine could prevent regulators from imposing a larger fine for other issuings related to the disaster. the other could be as large as $2.5 billion. >> with a move to san jose still in limbo, wolf is planning to meet with a southern california company to talk about plans for the oakland coliseum city project. that's a development that would build new stadiuming for the a's

nfc west but the niners are right behind f. they win tonight and sunday against arizona, and the seahawks lose to st. louis, then the 49ers would win the division and likely one more game at candle stick. >> if the 49ers end up as a wild card there is one more possibility, we're talking long shot. if the oth team advance to the championship game t niners would have the best record meaning they would get to host the championship game. >> a lot of people hoping for that. which would be nice to see one more game. we have more to say on this farewell to the sticks. we'll be live at the park plus get your details on our website that's nbcbayarea.com. search candlestick. >> farewell to the stick. hello, anthony slaughter. >> good morning. lots of good information there. we want to give you your forecast if you are planning to head out to candlestick later on. 3:00 we'll see sunshine, 60 degrees and san francisco and temperatures falling off back to near 51 by 10:00, a light jacket
